Prayer for June

THIS DAY AND EVERY DAY
 
I RISE TODAY
 
IN YOUR STRENGTH TO UPLIFT ME,
 
IN YOUR POWER TO DIRECT ME,
 
IN YOUR LOVE TO ENFOLD ME,
 
IN YOUR WISDOM TO GUIDE ME,
 
IN YOUR WAY TO LEAD ME,
 
THIS DAY AND EVERY DAY.

From:  "Celtic Soul" , a collection of Prayers & Blessings

On Sunday, 5th January, after a day of high fire danger and fires, the  Archbishop of Sydney, Dr. Glenn Davies, tweeted "To all those praying  for the safety of personnel and residents in #nswfires - I urge you to  continue to call on God's mercy. Pray the break in the weather allows  people to get to safety, refresh and give strength to the firefighters.  For those returning, may God give you His hope." The full prayer reads:

A prayer for Australia in drought and fire

Our heavenly Father,
creator of all things and especially the creator of this land and its original peoples;
we call out to you in these desperate times as fires have swept across several parts of our country.
Our  hearts cry out to you for those who have lost loved ones, and those who  have lost properties in the wake of these ravaging fires.
Father we  pray, in your mercy, restrain the forces of nature from creating  catastrophic damage; in your mercy protect human life.
Guard those  volunteers, rural fire service personnel and emergency services who  selflessly step into the breach to fight these fires. Guide police and  authorities who help evacuate and shelter those who are displaced. Bring  comfort and healing to all who suffer loss.
Remembering your  promises of old that seedtime and harvest will never cease, we pray that  you would open the heavens to send refreshing rain upon our parched  land; in your mercy, we pray for drenching rain.
We pray that despite  the forecasts, in your miraculous power you would bring forth rain to  quench these fires and to bring life back into the earth, so that crops  may grow and farmers may bring forth the harvest of the land again.
We bring these requests before your throne, in the name of your Son, who died and rose again for our deliverance. Amen.
